Barbara: It was dark under the willow trees...but not meant to be drab

ahhhh - very nice swan pic, I love the way the background and the reflection seem to merge building a frame for the swan, very good
Barbara: Danke Petra

Have a fab time!! Love this the pic. Only came up as half the pic on my screen at first so couldnt work out what the deal was but it has now shown it face in the entirety and it is lovely. Reminds me of the park where I grew up! Think it could be a favourite of mine!
Barbara: ah bless.for that you get an extra KK!

I think this one's a bit gloomy and I notice that the only other person who thinks so is also Nigerian. This must be why we're he happiest country in the world. Bring on the bright colours!

More seriously, the picture's beautifully framed even though I believe the aperture/ shutter speed combination is out of whack. The upper part of the water seems overexposed while the swan and the foliage appear a bit dark so perhaps setting the exposure for the swan (and its reflection) would have done the trick. When you figure that out please show me how!

Hope you had a good holiday.
